A 5-goal second half by the FHN Huskies left FHC boys varsity soccer team with a 7-1 loss on Tuesday night. FHC now sits at 10-6-1 overall and deals with a two-game losing streak. They will have an opportunity to bounce back Thursday night against the Lowell Red Arrows on the road in the last regular game of the season.

FHC struck first in the game, with a goal from senior Alec Norris with 13 minutes left in the first half. The Rangers expected to go into the half up 1-0 against one of the top teams in the state in FHN, but the Huskies took the lead just in a matter of three minutes, and FHN was up 2-1 at the half. In the second half, FHN came out very aggressive. FHC did not look prepared for the offensive outburst from the Huskies.

A bright spot for FHC was the forwards, including Alec and junior Sammy Postlewait. Alec and Sammy constantly put pressure on the FHN goalie, even in the rough second half.

FHC will take on Lowell tomorrow in hopes of earning one last conference win before playoffs. The last time the Rangers and Red Arrows met, FHC edged them out 1-0 at Ranger Stadium. The Rangers will need to make some adjustments on the defensive side of the ball in order to win the game.
